MY HEART IS A WIFFLE BALL/ FREEDOM POLE
I reared digital moonlight You read its clock, scrawled neon across that black Kismetly … ubiquitously crestfallen Thrown down to strafe your foothills … I’ll suck the bones pretty. Your nature perforated the abrasive organ pumps Spray painted everything known to man, Stream rushed through and all out into education. ‘The biggest struggle I’ve ever had has been about not going to school and working instead. I was worried about turning down specific individual experiences. Like each movie was, "F***, I have to do that movie." I just did a movie with Tim Blake Nelson [the recently wrapped Anesthesia] and he is brilliant. I play this character who is getting her Master’s degree in philosophy at Columbia [University], and I think I’m smart, but I’m definitely not book smart in that way.’
Only in the past year has Stewart become confident that, even if she doesn’t work for a year, she won’t be forgotten or feel that she does media to promote her projects. ‘I’m just not very good on TV, and it’s not my main goal in life to get good at it. People are like, “She just can’t handle” – for lack of a better word –“the spotlight.” No, actually, I can’t, and that is totally who I am. I love being an actor, but I’m the last person to want to have a birthday party. I don’t try to force it … or fabricate this personality … so I totally agree when people say I’m, like, the most awkward person.’ Stewart has reconciled that with her desire to be true to her poetic self. ‘If you’re operating from a genuine place, you can’t really regret anything.’
